Linux debian :no kernel module was found

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

2 days ago with the Debian, I got an error " no kernel module was found." through the install procedure of Debian and for multidistro. how does it work to get installed?

It is an iso. so iso is Cdrom. how could I make it transformed on my pen drive please? It seems that it is a bug from Debian installer

no kernel module was found


[! !] Load installer components from CD

No kernel modules were found. This probably is due to a mismatch between the kernel used by this version of the installer and the kernel version available in the archive.

If you're installing from a mirror, you can work around this problem by choosing to install a different version of Debian. The install will probably fail to work if you continue without kernel modules.

Continue the install without loading kernel modules?

Linux debian :no kernel module was found


Hi Haroldd1,

Before installing any program you have to check first the details of the following hardware in your computer system:

  • Video card
  • Usb devices like mouse and keyboard
  • Monitor and screen resolution
  • Soundcard and TV tuner card
After listing the details of your hardware now it s time to decide what kinds of Devian Linux packages you are going to install in which it will depend on the details of the hardware you listed. You will see this boot Linux messages on your screen after choosing the right kernel you want to use in your new system.
How ?
  • To install, have the cd inserted you have created in your CD-ROM the image ISO. 
Then let your computer boot from the CD-ROM .  You to take note that if your computer doesn't boot from the CD-ROM when you restarted it, you have to change the your  boot sequence from the BIOS system.
  • After configuring your system and booting your CD-ROM you will be ask to enter your username and press the enter "root " and you will be ask to enter a password.  This will be now your log on root user.


When you are already in a log in status you have to check your devices if all are being detected  by Devian especially the keyboard and the mouse. Not only that but also try to detect all the hardware in your computer by using the following command:

invoke-rc.d detect start  then run it to detect all your the present usb devices on your system
         Then let the ETHERNET enable.  to activate your network card.  Let the LAN run to detect your connection so that it may get activated.
        NEXT is you have to do the partitioning of the hard drive before reformatting and mounting your hard drive.
        Now install the new system.   After installing it now configure the DEVIAN and you have to activate your network card to get an IP.
        Now install the Important packages according to the new  hardware system in your computer.
        To finish the INSTALLATION you have to exit and have it reboot from the system by typing the word EXIT and REBOOT.
         You have to remember that you have to install a lot of packages to support the program you installed in your new system.
Hope this might help you.
